How to make Strawberry Margarita Ice Pops
To make Strawberry Margarita Ice Pops, rinse and let strawberries drain in a colander. Remove the green leaves with a paring knife. Place the strawberries in a blender or food processor along with 1-2 tablespoons of water and process until smooth.
Combine the sugar and strawberry puree in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, and stir until the sugar is dissolved which should take 1-2 minutes.
Turn off the heat and let cool slightly. Add the limeade, tequila and triple sec. Mix well.
Fill each ice-pop mold with the mixture and freeze for at least 4-6 hours.
To remove the ice pops from the mold, dip the mold in warm water for about 10 seconds.
If desired, garnish the Strawberry Margarita Ice Pops with a sprinkle of coarse salt. Serve immediately and enjoy!
